Personally I despise the Bernstein commercials - even worse when Mickey is in them :confused:

 

Wonder how much $$$ FSD gets from that law firm.....

Wtf??? They don't just fire someone like Murph mid-season for ratings. He must have come to work drunk a few times...people on here have made jokes about it, and here we are. Sucks.

Drapes would be an amazing color guy, but he's under contract to the Wings as some sort of assistant isn't he? Or is he in GR?

I think the next step is to put Richard Bernstein in Murph's old spot between the benches.

Anybody see that Volunteer Energy commercial with Drapes and Osgood?  If you have there's no way you can say either of those guys would be better in front of a camera than Murph with a straight face.

Maybe get Jenna Osgood between the glass.

 

Knows hockey.  Check.

Eye candy for the men.  Check.

Part of the Red Wing family.  Check.

Been on tv.  Check.

Could take out Corey Perry in a pinch.  Check.

 

Works for me.


Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

OK - politically incorrect, or in general poor taste on my behalf...

 

I see what you did there.

Weak sauce.   I will definitely miss our man Murph.  Dollar Hot Dog Night will never be the same.

Skip to the 1:36 mark for unscripted Drapes.  Sign him FSD!

I hear Dom Hasek wants a gig! It would be cool to have Dracula between the benches!

 

How about Sean Avery! I can hear his comments and see his "gestures" now!

FSD has decided to save money by not hiring anyone to be between the benches. Instead the Red Wings are just to have Franzine handle it while he floats around out there.  He has a great view by the way! No need for a Color Commentator to replace Mick on the road either...Franzine mic'ed up!
